Naproxen does not contain aspirin, which is acetylsalicylic acid. But you probably still should not take it before a surgery. Definitely call your surgeon's office and get their advice. And I wish you good health and a quick recovery. Emma Answered by Adalberto Clatterbuck 6 months ago.
Not really. In the mean time if you run a hot shower and sit in there with the door closed for 15 minutes or so the moist heat will help loosen up some of the nasal congestion so that you can breath a little more freely. If you keep your nasal passage moist it prevents everything from hardening and backing up on you. I have year round sinus problems so I know the feeling. You can also get some over the counter nasal saline to use. It is not medicated so you can use it as needed and that will also help keep your nasal passage moist. If you chose to use something medicated Afrin works great but only use it for a day or two. If you use it more then that you will become more congested then you are now. Your best bet is something for the discomfort. Advil Sinus and cold medication works well along with the saline for your nose and moist heat from a shower. Good luck.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Make an appointment with an Ob-Gyn. I had this happen to me when I was 19. I had a cyst on my ovary. It didn't cause me pain but I had to get it under control. Don't hesitate to get it checked out.

Sounds like nothing is wrong, 28 days is a typical cycle, not an absolute rule. Could be next time you go 6 weeks between periods. Unless you had unusual pain, or a big difference in flow, either really light or relly heavy, I woundn't worry about it. Answered by Mao Gumphrey 6 months ago.
I just talked to my doctor about this yesterday. The same thing happened to me, but I had a day of spotting in the middle. Since I'm quite a bit older than you, I have more things that could be out of wack than you. But he did tell me that more than likely I didn't ovulate. He didn't seemed to concerned about it, but he is still sending me to have blood work done and my regular exam next month. Being as you are 16, I wouldn't be too concerned about it at this point. If it continues to happen, definitely go see your OB/GYN about it. Answered by Adrian Lutke 6 months ago.
Truthfully, there is probably nothing wrong. Most women experience their period every 20-36 days. All women's cycles differ, it's just an average that women have a period once a month (which is actually considered every 28-29 days). Most women have an "extra" period one month out of twelve. If it causes you too much concern, ask your OBGYN. Answered by Nicolette Genetti 6 months ago.
This happened to me before. My doctor said it meant that I didn't ovulate (release an egg) for that cycle. She said that it is normal and happens to a lot of women at least once.

How can I reduce my period pain?
Lately my periods have gotten so bad. They even make me throw up. I get really bad cramps and diarhea and cant stomach anything. Does anyone have a period regimine they can share with me? I'm in despreate need. PS. Run in the family
Asked by Emilia Demuro 6 months ago.
My god, can I sympathize!! I had periods that bad until I started taking prescription Naproxen (Anaprox). This is before it came out OTC (1980, I was 23). Came in 550mg horse-pills and had to take a tab at the first sign of discomfort or else I'd up-chuck it from word "go." Even then it took a full hour to work. As you probably know, a lot of discomfort (I put that mildly) can happen in just a few minutes. After several years I had to up that amount to two tabs (with my doctor's permission). At it's worse I had to take a total of 4 tabs in 24 hours. I was very lucky my stomach didn't rot out but it was necessary for ANY kind of normal function. I mean they don't call it "the curse" for nothing! I seriously considered having all the plumbing removed, didn't want kids anyway. About five years ago I read about Omega 3 fish oil tabs (1000mg) and B12 (250mg). A daily dose of that seemed to help too. I've been able to cut back my Naproxen to 2 tabs in 24 hours. But! it could be my age too. Was getting up to the late 40's. Now, I've skipped several months for two years in a row. Never thought I'd wish myself older just to get rid of the cramps by going through menopause!

Have you been to a doc? You might have Endometriosis. It can cause alot of pain and other things during your periods. I have been dealing w/ it since high school, but wasn't told what it was until about 6 years ago. This illness has also been found to run in families. However, you still need to see a doc just to make sure. I am just telling you what I have dealt w/. The best thing you could do is talk to the doc.

Okay pay no attention to the stupid picture with this answer it's my husband's avitar. Anyhow, CALCIUM!!!! YES take calcium pills or drink a glass of milk even when pms-ing.

Exercise although I admit I never feel much like exercising during this time either! Another thing when I have terrible cramps I have a homemade giant sock thing that I filled with long-grain rice and tied off at the end and you can then heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes or more until really hot and can be used as a portable heating pad for your cramp area.

Red wine is good for cramps, if you are old enough to drink. Every month when it is time for my period, I drink one glass of wine before going to bed.

Asked by Tasia Delfi 6 months ago.
I found that none of the over the counter pills worked. I'd pop them like candy and the pain, cramps and vomiting would persist. My doctor prescribes Anaprox and I find that it helps tremendously. You should look into it. Also a hot water bottle is also a great help. It is very soothing. Another thing you can try is ginger tea. Ginger helps settle the stomach. I would suggest getting talking to your doc about Anaprox. It makes a world of a difference. Answered by Rubin Earnshaw 6 months ago.
It's always a good idea to have things checked out by a gyn. There may be an issue that needs attention. My suggestion for at home care is Tylenol or Pamprin. Alieve is also a good choice, and one suggested by my doctor. I don't take ibprophen because it seems to increase bleeding for me. I also don't take midol because it has caffine in it that my body does not react well to. Heat patches are a very good idea. I suggest something along the lines of ThermaCare HeatWraps. They are discreet and very affective. I too have severe cramps during the first few days and they make life more tollerable. If it doesn't overheat her, I suggest her wearing one on her tummy and another on her lower back. Also, I've found that tampons tend to make cramps worse. I hope this help you both! Answered by Hailey Borde 6 months ago.
Most doctors will give girls as young as 12yrs birth control to take care of the horrible cramps and breast tenderness. It is very common for teens to take BC for this, but she needs to take the pills everyday so that it will be most effective for controlling the symptoms. Also, I just want to note that while other posters are suggesting midol, pain killers, etc., it is not healthy for a 14 yr old to take the amount of midol and other pain killers that she would need to control cramping. Additionally, BC provides a preventative solution to the cramping, while a pain killer will only provide acute assistance with the pain. I worked with several young women in a clinic, and I have seen how large amounts of pain killers will cause more harm than good. Answered by Luella Iddings 6 months ago.
I'm not a single dad, but have two daughters that had the same problem. You can try some over the counter items; my youngest daughter used a heating pad and said it helped a lot; and something you probably don't want to think about...but should...birth control pills helped too...seems to put them on a better cycle...or so my wife said...the pills also help on any acne condition. Great of you to ask. Answered by Iona Kately 6 months ago.
It is not normal for woman to have severe menstrual cramping. She needs to be evaluated for endometriosis. Endometriosis causes severe cramping during periods and ovulation, plus heavy bleeding and irregular periods. Also, a doctor can prescribe a better pain reliever like vicodin. Many doctors do not take woman's pain seriously so you NEED to go there with her to the appointment and stress the need for something stronger to take than regular over the counter meds like Midol, or Advil. In the meantime, a hot water bottle works good. Answered by Lawerence Amedeo 6 months ago.
Ouch...I know how that feels. First, she can take "MIDOL" which is an over-the-counter medicine. It works well...at least for my bad cramps. If that doesn't work, have her take a warm-hot shower (it just subsides the pain for the moment). Or she can buy hot pads to put on her lower abdomen. She can also just sleep in all day to not feel the pain. Some experts says exercises can be a way to lower the cramps too. I hope this helps. Answered by Donnette Escalona 6 months ago.
Offer her some Midol (I think that's how you spell it, it's for menstrual cramps) or I find regular Advil works as well. And also keep a hot water bottle available for her. Some women's cramps can be really bad and if she is really suffering, then you may need to make an appointment with her doctor to discuss other options. Answered by Elana Rupert 6 months ago.
Have her try midol, it sounds funny but I have also read placing magnet where she is cramping will get the blood flowing and take away the pressure....Tell her to go for a jog that will help. If all fails take her to the doctor and have her put on birth control. Answered by Viva Fuger 6 months ago.
for cramps...she can be given a hot water bag massage or tell her to do some exercise...or the better way is to keep her active and healthy from the start as these cramps occur only due to weakness.so there must be a routine diet with lots of sprouts,dates syrup,homey badam,,....that will give her enough stamina to sustain those cramps Answered by Gaylord Bridget 6 months ago.
Heating pads could help, along with ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil). She can safely take up to 1600mg of it a day, though she needs to take it with food or milk to protect her stomach. If nothing at all helps, take her to a GYN to have an exam. There could be other reasons why she has such bad cramps. Answered by Robyn Hixson 6 months ago.

Why do doctors prescribe drugs which are available over the counter?
I was prescribed 500mg Naproxen twice a day, for which I got a prescription filled. Why don't docs just tell patients to take over-the-counter Naproxen (Aleve for example)? Is this some kind of scheme for the pharmaceuticals industry to keep making money on a drug now available in otc generic form?
Asked by Lily Ochsenbein 6 months ago.
The prescription naproxen 500 mg (Naprosyn) is a different salt from the one in prescription Anaprox/OTC Aleve, and has different pharmacodynamics, though not by a lot. But we do prescribe OTC drugs. Sometimes it's as a favor to those who can share the cost when it's covered by insurance, and sometimes it's because people just want and/or expect a prescription. You'd be surprised how often I have patients ask for a prescription after I've gone through a lot of trouble explaining why they don't need one, and in my specialty (emergency medicine), it's hard not to look on that as a waste of valuable time. Answered by Giovanni Cai 6 months ago.
If he prescribed it, then it's really up to you to know if it's available OTC. In my opinion, doctors are not in cohoots with the pharmaceutical industry. They are completely ignorant about what is available OTC, and about the cost of medication. I was prescribed an anti-anxiety med that cost much more than the one I was on when I was when I had no insurance, while being assured by my doctor it was really, really cheap. I wouldn't call really cheap $80.00 for a month's Rx. My boyfriend has to take Claritin and used to get it for $10.00 a month with insurance. Now that it's OTC, he can't get it filled at the pharmacy, has to buy it over the counter, which costs around 4 more times than it did with his script. Answered by Dwain Haynie 6 months ago.

I recommend taking the Pill. My period used to be so... incredibly.. bad. I couldn't eat, I couldn't even move. I'd miss so much school. At least the first 2 days of every period to be exact. I tried Midol.. never worked. If you don't want to get on the pill (it's not so bad.. today they're getting better and better. I use Zovia or Kelnor. It's a really good one) But if you're afraid to use the pill, ask your gyno about Anaprox. It's a lovely muscle relaxer. I got it w/out having to get checked by the doctor. However, when my prescription ran out, I had to get checked. Anyway, if you're afraid to use that, then you can use Aleve. That's what i use now. I'm on the pill, but i still have some annoying cramps every once in a while. So, i'll take some Aleve, and use a heating pad. I'll just fall asleep, and when i wake up i feel much better. If you don't have a heating pad, you can use a bottle of hot water with a towel wrapped around it, or if you have to get up and go, get some of those things that warm when you open them. You can stick them on the inside of your pants/underwear, and they'll stay warm for quite some time. Answered by Tamica Jacinto 6 months ago.
Birth control does help. I have severe cramps also, although I have never fainted, and when I went on the pill it almost immediatly helped.
